If you’ve been podcasting for more than just a couple of episodes, I can guarantee you’ve felt the frustration of keeping up. The weight of showing up week after week is hard.
Then you introduce one of those unexpected changes or a shift in your business, and it’s easy for that frustration and that weight to lead to total paralyzation. You’re absolutely stuck on how you move forward.
That’s where Monica Reinagel was when she realized it was time for us to sit down for a Podcast Strategy Intensive. After finding out her partner and co-host would be stepping back from the mic, Monica needed to navigate a big change in the podcast. She also wasn’t sure how she could use her current podcast to support her existing audience and an expanded audience as she explored expanding her services.
In this episode of The More Profitable Podcast, Monica Reinagel joins me to share how her Podcast Strategy Intensive helped her shift from dread and uncertainty to feeling excited about stepping into the next chapter of her podcast.
